Colin Firth & Carey Mulligan Garner Academy Award Noms Today!

It came to pass just as predicted. British actors Colin Firth and Carrey Mulligan, who were both strong contenders in the Actor & Actress in a Leading Role categories were nominated this morning for Academy Awards. Another month of hard campaigning and we just might see one of them take that little golden man back to England with them.

You can discover who their competition is and all of the other nominees at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences website. I am also rooting for An Education in the best picture and screenplay categories. All the winners will be announced on March 7th, 2010.

If you still need more Colin Firth excitement for the day – then check out this great BBC Radio 4 program Front Row that features an interview of His Firthness. Big thanks to Julie at Austenonly for the heads up.

Enjoy! Laurel Ann, Austenprose

Carey Mulligan is such a cutey, so gorgeous. Oh, yes, but a great actress, too.
